Energy & Sound Plan
Integrating passive and active energy is essential in designing an energy-efficient building. Passive energy incorporates strategies such as daylighting, wind, and room location while active energy includes artificial light and other things that can be controlled. Since the building is existing and creating a passive energy design could be costly in both time and money, the design focuses on active energy. Passive energy can be incorporated through the placement of the rooms in the building. Windows are facing North, East, and South. Offices, the lobby, and the break room are also situated on these windows to provide daylight to the users. All exterior windows will be glazed to provide privacy from the public. Active energy is incorporated through blinds, dimmable and automatic lighting, and controllable ventilation. Blinds will provide the necessary privacy and comfort for end-users. Lighting will be manually dimmable by 33%, 66%, and 100% and will automatically turn off if the room is unoccupied for a certain amount of time.
